There are 3 Welcome Gateways carved by Susan Point in Stanley Park near the Totem Poles.
The artist, Susan Point, is a famous Coast Salish artist whose art works are in the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver International Airport, and other museums around the world. She is from the Musqueam first nation which is located in the Vancouver area.
The welcome gateways were erected in 2008. They are actually the only local (Coast Salish) art at the site. The other totem poles are from northern first nations peoples.
One is located just off of Stanley Park Drive where you enter the area with the Totem Poles. The second one is to the left of the Legends of the Moon building. This one is relatively hidden and usually overlooked. The third welcome gateway is behind the totem poles.
